I have talked about Hackathon or something similar for Google App Engine in February since last year. Anyway, I have no time to organize one yet. Today @luke_bkk invited me to GAE Hack Day on Sat 21st of Feb 2009 (next weekend). That sounds awesome! We may be working on the same thing. It is the truth. Why not share the code?
I have a few to-do items in Django and GAE.
- Custom Authentication
- OAuth Consumer
- Media handling
Due to TwitPic problems early in this week, I decided to find better way to support TwitPic in Birdnest and jibjib. In the past, Birdnest calls
uploadAndPost which posts to Twitter immediately. Anyway, problem this week introduced me some error messages.
- 1001 - Invalid twitter username or password
- 1005 - Unknown error
There were something wrong in TwitPic and I cannot fix it myself. In addition, TwitPic likes to post in below format.
http://twitpic.com/url @reply text
That means I cannot reply by TwitPic. So it would be a great idea to post it to Twitter myself in Birdnest or jibjib
Yesterday I had my first session in PRAGMA 15. It is a hand-on session regarding SCMSWeb. Anyway, SCMSWeb is too easy for hand-on so I set the goal of this hand-on to extending SCMSWeb using Python. There are several approach to talk with SCMSWeb. One of them is asking for live information in XML format.
Anyway, most of audiences are non-programmer. They do not have any background in programming especially in Python. After an hour and 30 minutes, they are able to code in Python to parse XML using
XPath. I have no enough time to tell them to use
nano was the best choice.
